the elections for some of the candidates. i just think they will be more relevant in the future. as the tea party is not able to help out with the republicans, i think he will see a lot of people in the grass roots level leave the two parties and go to the third party. host: thank you for the call. jill stein just received a hundred $60,000 from the election commission because she is -- $160,000, she is out with a new web ad proclaiming with the green party is all about. [video clip] >> it is an end to unemployment, climate change and an end to corporate role. we are not talking spare change, we need a revolution. that is what we deserve it. what we do not deserve is pandering irresponsible [beep] passing itself off as campaigning. i cannot believe i said that, but that is how i feel. >> i am voting for jill stein. >> we need a green president. vote for jill stein. >> i am voting for jill stein. >> i am jill stein. i approve this message. host: dr. jill stein will be joining us later in the program. from the twitter page -- our question if you are just joining us are listening on c- span ra

attorney decided not to press charges was elected. most of the issues that affect people every day our local issues, but i believe that national organizations put so much emphasis on the top of the ticket they are ignoring vital state, gubernatorial, state, county commissioner, all those down-ballot races, and when you are talking about the military- industrial complex, those are district attorney's charging people, judge-citizens charging people, so speak to how you are educating your constituents to understand down-ballot races matter, and even more so, then the top of the ticket? >> it is also different states. if you complained about extremism in the republican party or the support by minorities of the democratic party, you self-gerrymander the country, counties, and districts. what is transpiring is you can make sure you -- but you are giving up on south carolina. that will not change blew any time soon. >> talking about mississippi, alabama, tennessee, arkansas, a louisiana, and those are considered red states. >> you have to make sure both parties are fighting and we are just no
ferry accident since 1971. >>> now the march to the presidential election just five weeks from today, a major weigh station could be tomorrow's presidential debate. for those minds already made up, two battlegrounds now in play. bellwether state of ohio, mobilizing supporters to seize an early lead there. and in florida, first absentee ballots hit the mail today. who will gain the advantage in tomorrow's presidential debate? despite days of intensive coaching and practice sessions, both candidates trying to appear loos loose. >> people want to know, who is going to win, who is going to score the punches, who is going to make the biggest difference in the arguments they make, and all the scoring of winning and losing. you know, in my view, it's not so much winning and losing. >> basically they're keeping me indoors all the time. it's a drag. they're making me do my homework. >> that was the president at a polling station in nevada. he called some random voter and that's what he said. mark preston is in denver for the showdown. the quiet before the storm. right, mark? >> reporter: sure
month, hard to believe, till election day, and no issue bigger than jobs, right? >> no doubt about that, randi, and you're right. after what you could consider a tough week for the president coming out of that debate in denver the jobs numbers are a good sign for his re-election bid, a happy sign for the re-election team, but for mitt romney this is fascinating, landi, because the unemployment rate is below 8% for the first time since barack obama came into the white house back in january of 2009. you have heard mitt romney on the campaign trail over and over again, over the last year and a half running for the white house, criticize this president on jobs for the unemployment rate being over 8%. now it is under 8%. now it's time for mr. romney to have to pivot from his favorite line. take a listen to both candidates on the campaign trail yesterday reacting to the jobs numbers. >> today's news should give us some encouragement. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy just to try to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country's com
, are debating for the first time before the november election. it is a race to decide who will represent texans in the u.s. senate. i hope that by the end of the night to have a better idea of who you want to vote for. we will follow your comments and commentary on twitter. just use the hashtag #belodebate. we will be able to follow along. look for additional information on twitter. we will have supplemental information on each candidate on what -- where they stand on issues. this is a very different debate. we are throwing out the rules. candidates will face each other answering tough questions. moderating tonight is wfaa's senior political supporter -- reporter, brad watson. joining him is political reporter gromer jeffers. let's turn to dan. >> thank you very much. good evening. >> good to be with you. >> thank you for being with us tonight. >> should be fun. >> we are at it again. >> i would like to start tonight by framing with this race is right now for november with questions for each of you. we start with mr. sadler. you have an uphill battle. raising money has been hard. the democratic
it "forewarned." with your help, paul ryan and i will get elected. [cheers and applause] you'll see enterprises a large and small decide to open their doors and expand. we will see the kind of recovery that america needs and deserves. i have confidence in the american people. i know that created and patriotic people in here. we love this country. there is no other nation on earth like it. we are an exceptional nation. i believe that. when the founders wrote that document known as the declaration of independence, they changed the world with insights that god gave us our rights and not the government. [cheers and applause] these are rights which we have. i love america. my confidence in the future comes from my passion for this country and for the people of this country. do you realize how unusual we are as a people? i do not know how it began, but it is here. it is in our hearts. some years ago when i was serving as governor of my state, the then president of israel came to boston. i happen to have a lunch with him in someone's apartment. someone said to him, "what you think about america's invo
, unreliable indicator. >> why are we talking about it? you're never going to get elected above 8%. >> ten years i've been saying this to people, stop using it, start talking about whether or not -- 114,000 jobs are created, those are jobs that were created. those are jobs created minus jobs lost. that's easy arithmetic that a second-grader can do. the unemployment rate is a little bit of a red herring, used as a political football, being used again as a political football today. i find it much easier to understand the other numbers. >> i don't know if we have this graphic, i tried to make it up super, super fast. >> making your own graphics now. >> throwing my staff into total disarray. i'll hold it up, can you see it? >> that's great. very tv friendly, ashleigh. >> it speaks to your spoipoint. this is what i do when i have nothing else to do. i went back to 1936 and the jobless rate was 13.6% and the next time it was 14.6%. and then he brought it down to 8.2%, a heck of a turn. >> if it goes up, you think it is bad. if it goes down, you think it is good. any fool can tell you whether it
the november election. it is a race to decide who represents texans in the u.s. senate. we hope by tonight, you will have a better idea of who you want to vote for. we will follow your comments on twitter. on behalf to do is use the hashtag #belodebate. look for additional and permission on twitter as well. we will hash tag supplemental and permission and each of the candidates. he will notice this is a very different debate. we are throwing out the rules. the candidates will face each other, answering the tough questions. moderating tonight's discussion our senior political reporter. joining him, gromer jefers. let's turn it over to them. >> good evening. thank you very much for being with us tonight. >> should be fun tonight. with someo start individual questions to each of you. we will start with mr. paul sadler first. you have an uphill battle. raising money has been hard. the democratic party establishment --[unintelligible] democrats in texas are not strongly behind you. why should independent voters are moderate republican voters consider you? >> did not appease texas democratic party wi
face in this election. what the election comes down to, and you are going to hear over the next two months, i know you must be tired of hearing hands, but you're going to hear more over the next two -- or the next six weeks, and over and over again you're going to hear my opponents talk about how bigger tax cuts, fewer regulations, that's the way to go. and since government can't do everything it should do almost nothing. they're making -- if you can't afford health care, then hope you don't get sick. if you can't afford college, borrow money from your parents. you know what? that's not who we are. i don't think government can solve all our problems but government's not the source of all our problems, either. there's some things we've got to do together. we -- instead of going around blaming somebody, unions or immigrants or gays or somebody, for what's going on, what we need to do is pull together. we're all in this together. we believe that america only works when we all accept responsibility for ourselves, and for each other. that's how we- >> and mr. obama will be on the road th

are out to buy the election. the reality is is that there are desperate motivations and very different types of people. they are wealthy people and their careers are over and they don't want anything back even if they get a tax break, they don't care. from policies downpour -- from a legal standpoint, how you distinguish from the outset the one guy from the other guy? . there are certain philanthropic goals. there are also real business interests and there is personal interests. as a policy matter, i would not know how to say if you check the box, i am just in it for nothing there for you can give more money to the guy who works for the payday lender. they face huge regulatory barriers. mitt romney my promise that if he is elected, that will not go into effect. >> do you want to dive in? >> 100 years ago, the wall street trusts and elected theodore roosevelt because they thought he would not enforce the antitrust laws. that was ideological and they did not like william jennings bryan because they thought he was a socialist. they said if you want our thinking and the white house, we wan
of the swing states that will decide the presidential election. well, here is mitt romney, we have heard these words before, sounds as though he's downplaying expectations as they say. take a listen. >> people want to know who is going to win, who is going to score the punches and who is going to make the biggest difference in the arguments they make and there is going to be all the scoring of winning and losing. >> so romney is saying, no, it is not about winning, not about losing, it is about america. but you have a lot of republicans, newt gingrich, for example, saying, hey, mitt romney, get out there, pick a fight, and win it. jim acosta with me now from the romney campaign. the debate, of course, tomorrow night in denver, you, sir, are in littleton, colorado. should we take mitt romney at face value when he says this debate is not about me winning? >> reporter: well, brooke, i think this is all part of the debate expectations game that has been going on for several days now. i think you also sort of heard mitt romney downplay some of the talk that has been going on since the new yor
in the middle of an election campaign. bill clinton was comparing beijing to baghdad. this was at the time when china was moving from baghdad to paris. [laughter] maybe i am overstating the case, but that is what is happening. this was a dramatic shift in china and the u.s. government paid absolutely no attention to it. it had no impact on the policies of the clinton the administration when it took office. since i was the american ambassador, this confronted me with a problem of american government and had one view of china but china was already moving in a different direction and that created some contradictions in trying to carry out my instructions. this time, you have some echoes of that. clearly the bo xilai affair has shown that the political system is not that different for others. leaders have their own ambitions. some succeed and some come crashing down, as in the case of bo xilai. so we should not assume political jockeying is not taking place and this could explain why the announcement of the party congress was delayed. no longer do you have an all- powerful leader who can resolve di
. but if it looks like it is more possible that romney could pull it out, what happens closer to election day? >>guest: the funny thing is, i would take one side of this obama argument which is, to me, as far as the markets go he is a known quantity. he has thrown everything possible that isant business -- that is antibusiness, health care, tax hikes, health care that no one wants, but the market going up. if romney gets in the market continues to go out. record amount of profit and record amount of cash. they are not spending it because they are scared of the administration. >>neil: a lot of them are warning including h.p. and intel. they see storm clouds. >> governor romney and paul ryan will be my special guest tonight at 9:00 p.m. i have forwarded money supply questions to hannity so he is covered. still think it is too late for romney to roar in wait until you hear about bundlers who are busted. 0t[h7♪ forz(power!) andiamo! andiamo!

's report will be the second for the election . a new warning this morning. cvc said the outbreak of deadly form of menigitus is. six states and leaving five people dead . it is link would to a steroid commonly used for back pain . it health officials suspect that bacteria was in the steroid and which is now recalled. the drug maker surrendered its license. darrell hannah making a splash in jail when she was protesting the key tone pipe line. the two stood in front of ground clearing equipment. both were charged with criminal trespassing and those are your headlines. brian went off to heat cooling for the day. >> steve: fantastic. there he is. that is just like in your fancy hotels . we have a thermostat. >> gretchen: 20 gets it back up to 69. >> brian: i will get funding. >> steve: coming up, straight ahead, live from the hot studio. a story that is almost impossible to believe. a dog sneaks out of his house and tracks down his owner who happened to be in the hospital miles away. that's the owner right there and that's the dog, their story coming up. >> gretchen: where was the president's
tonight. may not. it has been the election so far, interesting taped moments. for sure. >> the could. but i think mitt romney in the past has distanced himself away from anything that had to deal with jeremiah wright and connection with obama and his camp said i don't see this as news worthy and had absolutely nothing to do with it. kind of be surprised if they would go there. >> in the news cycle until 9:00 tonight when the debate gets rolling. >>> voters in pennsylvania will not have to show a photo id before casting their presidential ballot next month. a judge has put a temporary hold on the state's new law. abc's t.j. winick explains. >> reporter: 93-year-old vivian applewhite cast her first vote for president back in 1932 for franklin roosevelt. but because she didn't have the required documents to obtain a photo i.d. she almost didn't have a chance to vote this november. it turns out applewhite will be able to vote after a judge blocked pennsylvania's controversial new voter i.d. law from taking full effect before the presidential election. >> at the end of the d
. >> there are no coincidence five weeks to election. they don't exist. lay off notices by law was supposed to go out on november 2nd. they would have gone out to people in virginia which is a swing state. the white house doesn't want that. it moved hen and earth to top them. lochheed martin -- >> gretchen: how did they do it? >> it is it a hypothetical lay off and no warning notice is required. they come back it is clear . we have to send them out. the white house said if you don't send them out. we'll indemnify you against the losses if the lay offs have to take place. white house used taxpayer money to make sure lay off notices didn't go out. they are trying to buy a few dozen vote necessary virginia and preparing to use our money to do it >> steve: we are talking about lawsuits, hey, look under the warren act lochheed martin you are suppose tod let us know . and now the white house will write a big check maybe. >> they will make sure every last potential vote goes to the president this is what they are doing right now. loch heed martin want tod send out 123,000. >> steve: but ther required by law
has already downgraded the united states. if we do not make any real progress, right after an election and everybody is trying to deny, if they cannot make progress, then the problems are still toxic. you do not need causing a recession as a threat to force us to move. we should get past the fiscal closed. and then get to the fundamentals in this grand bargain that would forever get rid of the fiscal cliff. that is the best way to go. >> and diane? >> the way we got here to the fiscal cliff was a bunch of cans getting kicked down the road. if you look at the cbo analysis of the fiscal of, you realize the scary part is the can that happen to be in the road in front of us right now. there is a good part of the cliff, and that is the part that stretches on through the 10-year budget window. that is something we call the baseline and the cbo analyzes about. at the cdo talks about how going over the fiscal closed at the end of this year would likely bring us back into recession. i think that is very important to hold onto because we have been in the habit of kicking the can down the road. i
i.d. law from taking full effect before the presidential election. >> at the end of the day this is a victory for democrats because they can argue that no longer would the kind of voters that they want to bring to the polls are encouraged to go to the polls will be turned away. at the same time, for republicans, winning pennsylvania was always a stretch. >> reporte voters can still be asked for identification but can't be discouraged from voting or disenfranchised if they dent have the proper i.d. >> they can go ahead and vote anyway. but the safe bet is to have i.d. and speed the whole process. >> reporter: supporters of voter i.d.s say the laws weren't passed to exclude voters just to protect against voepter fraud. critics say the real issue is voter suppression, not voter fraud, pointing out nearly every state legislature that passed tougher voter i.d. laws is controlled by republicans. >> this is a victory today for the people and a loss for the scheming and lying legislators in harrisburg who thought they could hijack the presidential election. >> reporter: the judge's
this election. they've been put off now for a while because of the campaign, and i was very lease pleased with ou mea with how meaty the substance was. jenna: romney did well because the president didn't show up or bring his a game, those are some of the comments. did romney do well, because he did well or did romney do well because the president didn't go quite as expected? >> i think it's both. i think romney owned it because he was in control, energized. he was very well prepared. he gamed out every positive narrative of every thread of every topic and he was totally at ease and seemed to be enjoying himself. if the president had equally engaged and realized 20 minutes in, wow, mitt romney i underestimated him, he's having a great night here and put his foot on the gas he might have got a draw. he didn't do that. he looked like he didn't want to be there or want the job. that was something that happened to him a few times during a very long extended campaign with hillary clinton. that obama that we saw last night was often fighting the real competitor, barack obama who ultimately preva

from nebraska, but a u.s. senator. if elected, how will you balance economic interests of agriculture with those of the nation, and should confiscate any to require use of up to 15 billion gallons a year of ethanol, taking 40% of the nation's corn crop, when critics say that raises food prices for everyone? >> the critics are wrong. the nation plus interests in agriculture are aligned. it is one of our most competitive industry. the interest of agriculture and the united states are aligned and i am appalled that neither governor romney or president obama is talking about agriculture in this campaign. it is an important part, a foundation of the u.s. economy. ethanol, i fought for ethanol since i was governor. it has lowered the price of fuel. it is created tens of thousands of jobs. i was in blair last week, a great example of bipartisan effort. there is a new dcompany with a hundred jobs. is is not a failure. this is not a threat to our economy. the interest of agriculture and the united states are completely in alignment. there's no need to choose. >> senator fischer? >> i grew up i
debates? front ask and center in the midterm election . where is the tea party in this year's race. ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. thank you, thank you very much. what a great audience we have in the studio and welcome to huckabee for the fox news studios in new york city . biggest story in policings . first presidential debate held in denver. the universe view even amongst the staunchest obama supportirs was that mitt romney won the debate. and tingle up his leg hearing obama speak he was in such a melt down he it is tangled run the leg because he wet his pants. some of the excuses for the president not being much better than the empty chair that clint east wood revealed . al gore thought it was thaltitude of denver. i think the former vice president may have been a little high. but another ridiculous made on another net work and he with a straight face suggests that obama didn't debate well because he was black. what after geth elected as president of the united states and serving four years bark obama walked out on the stage and said i am black, i can't take on the white
opportunities that my family had when we first came to nevada. this election is about the falling. people come over to me and say, i never missed a day of work. i never missed a mortgage payment. i lost my job. i lost my home. what will i do? the answer to that question is what this election will be about. who is going to fight for middle-income families? who will stick up for the people of the state of nevada? we need a champion tomake sure we concentrate on good paying jobs here in the state and we keep people in their homes and we protect older americans from ending their medicare. by turning it over to private insurance companies. veterans and make sure they get the benefits they deserve. my opponent is planning for the -- playing for the other side. he is taking care of the big guys. they do not need our help. wall street corporations, big oil companies, they are doing fine. the people in the state of nevada need a champion. at that time, my opponent was championing the wealthiest among us. i think the people in the stated that the state of nevada know just by listening to us and who is
. the bake-off has been a bellwether of the elect, four out of five elections. makes me hungry. >> first lady's cookies did better than the president. it was rough. >> we'll be back. rough. >> we'll you disgust me. prove it. enough is enough. d-con no view, no touch trap snaps to kill instantly. no looking, no touching. d-con. get out. >>> this morning on "world news now" -- romney's reversal. the candidate now says his comments about the 47% were 100% wrong. >> he is trying to build on his debate momentum, while president obama tries to regroup. it is friday, october 5th. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now." >>> good morning. i'm reena ninan in for paula faris today. >> paula's off spending a little time with her sister who's in town. enjoy the long weekend, ms. faris. your first time on the overnights. you got to abc news, how many months ago? >> six months now. >> yes, you are still learning the ropes. around here. >> still learning the ropes. i will take any tips you can offer. >> yeah. >> is there a little sheet you can pass off to me? >> there's bathrooms up there, and
the middle class. movinghow you keep forward. that's the choice in this election. and that's why i'm running for a second term. that's what we need. now, my opponent has been trying to do a two-step and reposition and got -- got an extreme makeover. [applause] but the bottom line is his underlying philosophy is the top-down economics that we've seen before. he thinks that if we just spend another $5 trillion on tax cuts that yes, skewed toward the wealthiest, if we get rid of more regulations on wall street, then our problems will be solved. jobs and prosperity will rain down from the sky. the deficits will magically disappear. we will live happily ever after. [laughter] even though he's been proposing this plan for months now, he's had a little trouble explaining just how it would work without blowing a hole in the deficit or making middle class families pick up the tab. the other night he ruled out asking millionaires and billionaires to pay even a dime more in taxes. he said there's no way that he would close the loophole that gives big oil companies billions each year in corporate welfar
on distortion to try to win an election by default. >> we have had a strategy that we executed from the beginning. we're ahead because the american people believe that this president has in his mind and in his heart the middle-class and how to build an economy that works for the middle-class in this country. that is fundamentally what looking for. >> chief political correspondent carl cameron is live in boston. paul ryan is playing the old expectation games on lower xfgss for governor romney but chris christie is calling the debate a game changer. i wonder who is right. >> reporter: you got surrogates talking a lot today. they will continue until wednesday when the priangs can go face to face. today governor romney is doing his debate. president obama has arrived in las vegas and getting ready for the showdown. romney will be in denver in advantages of this. paul ryan was talking about the romney ryan ticket new framework for the race. they said referendum on president obama's record. but it's decide how to best deal with the competent. here is paul ryan trying to set the stage. >>
